To her most gracious Majesty the Queen:

We, your Majesty’s faithful subjects, the members of the legislative assembly of Victoria, in Parliament assembled, crave leave to approach your Majesty with fresh assurances of our loyalty and affection.

We desire to express our abhorrence of the foul crime by which the United States have been deprived of their late President, Abraham Lincoln, and our profound sympathy with the American government and people in their national calamity.

We desire also to record our unfeigned condolence with Mrs. Lincoln in her deep affliction; and we humbly beg that your Majesty will be graciously pleased to communicate these our heartfelt sentiments to the government at Washington.

MURPHY,
Speaker.
